I want to show a 'Text' field 'a' only when the picklist value in the field 'b' is 'Other'.

Hi,

I want to show a 'Text' field 'a' only when the picklist value in the field 'b' is 'Other'.
Can we achieve this by 'No coding' and just the config.
Thanks in advance..
Appreciate any response

Unfortunately NO i believe, you might have to use visualforce to do this

Hi sfdc,

I would actually recommend creating a visualforce page for this, but if you absolutely must avoid code, there is a way to do it.

Set up a new record type and assign a page layout that shows that text field 'a'. Create a workflow to change the record type when the picklist value is 'other'. Make sure your "default" page layout hides the text field 'a'. This way, the text field will be defaultly hidden until the user manually changes the record type or changes the picklist value to 'other'.

Hope this helps!
